You may not think about the environment when you book your summer vacation, but managers at certain Iowa destinations are starting to think about it for you. All this month we’re taking you to places around the state where you can stay and play in a sustainable way.
Honey Creek Resort State Park is an hour and a half drive from Des Moines. It’s located on Rathbun Lake near Moravia in South Central Iowa. With miles of trails, an indoor waterpark and nature as far as you can see, Dad Mike Owen says Honey Creek Resort State Park was an easy choice for the Mount Vernon family’s summer getaway. He says, “It’s an easy drive, about 3 hours for us. The kids can handle that and it’s got everything we need.”
